Football quarterback Mark Sanchez is featured in a retro beach-themed editorial in the new June 2009 issue of GQ Magazine.

'Built For The Beach' by photographer Carter Smith shows the sexy quarterback in retro short-cut swim trunks alongside Sports Illustrated beauty Hilary Rhoda.

The shot of Mark Sanchez running in red swimming shorts reminds me of the iconic Baywatch theme.

Implications - Unfortunately for the ladies, Sanchez is posing with a hot bikini model, so jealousy might be an issue for some of you. As for the clothes (for anyone who's actually paying attention), Sanchez is donning 70s swim trunks (a nice retro touch) as well as Southern California-style tank tops and a windbreaker.
